Product description


...a brilliant document of the times...a work which uses history knowledgeably, skillfully, and creatively: a rarity.

(Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians)

...professionally informed, competitively astute, and perversely brilliant...

(The Yale Review)

...these studies are brilliant...the kind of art history and theory that is rarely produced.

(Ada Louis Huxtable The New York Times)

From the Back Cover

Learning From Las Vegas created a healthy controversy on its appearance in 1972, calling for architects to be more receptive to the tastes and values of 'common' people and less immodest in their erections of 'heroic, ' self-aggrandizing monuments. This revision includes the full texts of Part I of the original, on the Las Vegas Strip, and Part II, ' Ugly and Ordinary Architecture, or the Decorated Shed, ' a generalization from the finding of the first part on symbolism in architecture and the iconography of urban sprawl.
